Acer Refreshes Mobiles at Computex

At Computex this month, Acer has introduced several new mobile devices, in addition to larger displays (Acer’s Projectors Compensate for Ambient Light).

The 8″ Iconia One 8 (B1-830) and 7″ Iconia One 7 (B1-760HD) are new tablets with IPS panels, running Android 5.1. The 8″ model has an octa-core Mediatek processor, and joins the older B1-820 (quad-core Intel processor). The 7″ features Acer’s Precision Plus technology, which supports very fine writing implements.

There was also a new hybrid: the Aspire Switch 11 v2. As the name implies, it is the second generation of last year’s Aspire Switch 11. The unit has a magnetically-attached keyboard, will last up to eight hours on battery and features an Intel Core-M processor. The 11.6″ display uses an IPS panel (optically-bonded), protected with Gorilla Glass 3.

Full specifications for these products will be released closer to their release in Q3. Acer also said that a new 10″ Switch model, with Intel’s newest Atom X5 processor, would be announced later in the year.
